So I actually had not heard of this movie until it popped up on my recommendations today and I'm glad it did! I wish I had heard about it sooner because this turned out to be a really interesting movie.

Though it was not as scary as I thought it would be, I think of it as more of a paranormal thriller, I guess? I really wish it had went into more detail about what the creature was. I hate when movies just rely on "it's a monster" kind of thing. It leaves me with way to many questions. Especially when scenes pop up involving salt, like that's the protection of all protections. It's.....not? Lol I mean don't get me wrong, it's powerful but can you imagine throwing salt at a skinwalker? It'd probably just look at you like "The fuck?"
And I know "witch" is tossed around a bit, but come on... that just leaves so much open, that is still doesn't give you much to go on. I wish if it was a lure or myth they had put the story in there some how.

That ending was awesome though! I was NOT expecting all of those plot twists! My jaw hit the floor. 

EDIT: At the time I watched this movie, I wrote the review and forgot to hit publish! My bad. But the more I think on this now, the more the movie just doesn't stick with me and it hasn't been that long since I watched it. I know the parts I remember were mostly really good but the rest was kinda "eh" -- so I've been battling the rating for a while because I originally had it set at 6, but I kinda want to give it 4? So I'll settle on 5. I'm still shook about that ending though. Lol
